rinkos: i dont get it .why make a 18-200mm when the ruling class are at 18-250mm ..???
Because 200-250 does not yield that much difference in crop.
A good quality superzoom does have its uses; whats keeping me away from them is the sub-par image quality of the majority of them.
I hope for a 14mp APS-H CSC from fuji that has a sensor optimised for dynamic range/signal to noise.
This megapixel lunacy needs to stop when 12mp RAW outputs from a D700 have a higher effective resolution than higher MP APS-C counterparts with higher megapixel counts.
I really wish for something along the lines of a finepix S5.
Simon97: Sony's low shadow noise on this sensor has Canon's engineers scratching their heads.
I must admit though, the E-PL3's JPEGs are nothing short of beautiful.
Sony is playing on the lack of knowledge consumers have over noise performance... JPEG wise chroma noise reduction seems to be the sony/nikon way of artificially improving noise performance. Canon's engineers aren't scratching their heads.
This camera doesn't even beat a D3100; whats so special about it?
This is a great camera but theres no good glass to go with it... :S
artistsurfer: Built-in high rez viewfinderHi-rez still shots during video60fps video...
Creative Directors are going to love this camera
you can already export stills from images on premiere.
tilariths: It seems that m43 and Nex system was designed by DLSR people.
Heck, Olympus pretty much abandoned DLSR market (and their own excellent glass to an extend it is slighly less usable on m43).
Nikon, apparently, used their compact people to design it. With huge pushback from DLSR folks not to step on their turf.
no samsung? :P
The pentax Q has a raison d'etere; large DOF/high sync... anybody want some softboxes? :D... however I do not get this. this doesnt even have a hotshoe...
Whilst sony and samsung are pumping out F1.8/F1.4 fast lenses on large sensors, nikon and pentax have decided to go down the route of making small sensors and slow lenses. Shouldnt a smaller imaging circle allow for wider apertures?
I don't get the rationale behind it... maybe its to compensate for the fact they havent been able to develop a efficient CDAF system? (Bigger DOF allows for less hunting)
great. I just got a 45MB/S UHS-1 card...
There should really be a lot more detail than there is in this image... they need to test this camera with proper glass.
lifelibertyproperty: why would anyone buy one of these? Sony and the others look better...and there was no attempt to make it look retro. I don't get it. A dead end system at introduction. Reminds me of the failed HP tablet experiment.
Bring on the Nikon 4/3rds...although I'll wait a few years for Nikon to release the next version.
Because the E mount currently has not such a great lineup of lenses?
Despite the negativity here, the fact that they're so cheap is why they sell so many of them...
would be nice if they made a 7.5mm non-fisheye lens
Sony & Samsung have the same problem:Bad JPEGs.... I think this camera would shine with RAW.
tkpenalty: The low-light performance at ISO3200 is very impressive. Although there is some chroma noise, there is a LOT of detail compare to the sony competition.
crap. I had a closer look... my bad.
This is the first originally developed sensor from Samsung. Should be a good upgrade from the antiquated K5/GX20 sensor.
